NAIROBI Senator Mike Sonkoâ€™s estranged wife JosephineÂ Thuku has rejected DNA test results presented in court and
asked that another test be done.Â The tests undertaken by government analyst GeorgeÂ Ogunda on September 30 indicate that Sonko is the
biological father of her first child but not of her second.
The tests indicate that the two children are biologicallyÂ related. Thuku had claimed Sonko is the biological father ofÂ the two children.Â The senator had said he is the father of the first-born butÂ denied paternity of the second child. Yesterday, ThukuÂ rejected the DNA tests results, saying Sonko picked theÂ children up from school and went to a private house withÂ the unidentified doctor where only one child was examined.
Thukuâ€™s lawyer Leonard Shimaka said another DNA testÂ should be undertaken at PathCare Hospital in Mombasa forÂ the best interests of the children. â€œThe results will comeÂ direct to the court and not to either party in 21 days,â€ heÂ said.
Thuku asked the court to compel Sonko to continueÂ providing monthly shopping facilities for the two children atÂ a cost of Sh15,000 at Nakumatt Ukunda.
Sonkoâ€™s lawyerÂ Lydia Kwamboka denied claims that the senator took theÂ children to a hotel for DNA test. She said he took them to aÂ hotel to make them comfortable.Â Kwamboka said Sonko is ready to take another DNA test.Â Sonko has said that even if the DNA results prove he is not
the biological father of the second child, he will continue toÂ provide for the child. In the case, Thuku wants Sonko to payÂ Sh140,000 monthly maintenance for the two children. TheÂ hearing will be on December 17.
